Up for auction is this 1974 Porsche 914 finished in Sunflower (Summer) Yellow over a black leatherette interior. Offering a visceral driving experience with its nimble handling and larger 2.0L engine from the factory, the 914 is ideal for the prospective Porsche enthusiast. Part of a collection based out of North Carolina, this example benefits from over $40K in recent work including a full glass-out refinish, interior refurbishment and complete engine rebuild. With only approximately 600-miles driven since, this 914 is now being offered with proper documentation by its seller out of Charlotte, NC.
The Sunflower (Summer) Yellow finish on this 914 is said to be in excellent condition along with all chrome and brightwork (detailed images are available in the photo gallery). Within the last year, this roadster underwent a professional glass-out respray to the original factory specification at Automotive International of Charlotte, NC. This 914 rides on Factory alloy Fuchs wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires with 2017 date stamps.
Having recently been refurbished, the black leatherette interior on this 914 features completely new carpeting, new insulation and recovered center console and dash facia. The seller notes that the original seats and door panels are present and show well, detailed images within the image gallery. This interior is set to factory specifications aside from a dealer installed A/C system that has recently been fully serviced and remains operational.
This 914 features a numbers-matching naturally-aspirated mid-mounted 2.0 L 4-cylinder fuel-injected engine. Power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. This example boasts a complete engine rebuild which was carried out just 600-miles ago (receipts are included in the sale). Additionally, the original fuel pump was rebuilt, fuel lines were re-installed, and a new fuel filter was added. With many records of work performed dating back to 1986 in addition to work performed under most recent ownership, this 914 is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
The sale will include many service records, one key, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and a clean title.
